  1. You make them Bingo and I'll take 4-5 off your hands. Can't seem to find the early Slot.it Boxer pods anymore which is completely understandable.
  2. I do enjoy this little car but its chassis, which is quite brittle, has been fixed too many times (the arrows show too many breaks). I also have a Scaley Escort that's been converted to sidewinder that punches above its weight so I figured the Alfa could do with similar treatment as it's about the same size. The front of the Scaley Escort chassis and the rear of a Pioneer Charger chassis fit quite nicely with some down sizing.
  3. Cheers Bingo ... just thinking about it, the FK-130 could just go in an inline pod made for long can (FK-180) motors, like the earlier Slot.it Boxer pods, as long as there are mount holes in the same place, as the dimensions other than the length are the same. I'd be a starter for some of these then there are options for 2 motor types.
  4. Nice and neat looking pods there. It would also be great to see someone doing pods for FK-130's (inline or sidewinder). FK130's casings are actually slightly shorter than FF motors although the contacts protrude slightly more but almost exactly the same length including contacts as a FF-050. I know they're not widely used but I've got quite a few that could do with a home.
  5. If you want to do photos https://postimages.org/ is pretty straight forward. I'm pretty useless when it comes to computers so if I can work it out it must be dead simple.
  6. And yet another welcome aboard KRZee
  7. For a 1st time effort that's really good going and well done. As far as colours bleeding through white decal paper goes for roundels or patches that aren't going to be printed on but just cut to size, I give the paper a light flick over with Tamiya white primer 1st which seems to stop the bleed through, although don't know if this'd work if you were going to print over that as well.
  8. I figured that was probably the case and maybe like the listing states, would make a great FJ Easter egg.
  9. On our local auction site ... anyone know anything about it? - https://www.trademe.co.nz/toys-models/slot-cars-tracks/cars/listing-2762311777.htm?rsqid=601620c35a8347a39a5c8020760d3377-001
  10. Sounds fair to me too, although I've just got the Bartlett Camaro pretty much sorted and running 8.8-9sec laps on Wazzas track. Was hoping to mix it with some of those XB-C's this time around but it can wait.
  11. Good call from munter. If it had been a horse race the win would have been by a nose. Congrats definitely to Dave and Pat for putting great imagination into action.
  12. Pretty much the quality I expected from HB. Unfortunately mine has stalled and it won't be ready for a run before the end of the month if ever. Good going guys and good luck munter.

    18k ff-050

    These el-cheapo FF's might be of interest to someone wanting a few less horses than the Scaley '18k' ??? rocket motors. They have marginally higher revs than a SRP 18k FF at 12v but as they only arrived today I haven't had a chance to try one as yet. - https://www.ebay.com/itm/2PCS-MABUCHI-FF-050SK-11170-Micro-Motor-DC-9V-12V-17500RPM-for-Car-AV-CD-Player/262360539801?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
